[Excerpt from Michael Speaks: May 2013]
[Question] Hello Michael. I am very interested in the Fragment in Siberia known as Vissarion ( and his following). I have a feeling that in this case " there is more than meets the eye". I'd like your brief take on his chosen path and philosophy. Is he a transcendental soul? thanks.
The fragment in question appears to be a charismatic Early Mature Priest-Cast Sage with a means of packaging delusions so that they are fairly useful, attractive, and generally harmless.
He is not a Transcendental Soul.
We refer to his Idealism as "delusion" here, only in the sense of its claims and conclusions. The idealism, itself, is as most idealism: a perspective that seeks to improve upon that which can be improved upon.
When Idealism cannot be fulfilled, it can turn into Naivete, and either bring about failings or even disastrous consequences, or be repackaged in delusions that can help to sell the ideals.
[Comment] hmm alright. so his claims for being enlightened rebirth of jesus are part of the charismatic idealist package? hmm
[MEntity] It plays upon the narrative of persecution, as well, for those who would refute his claims are clearly in denial, or not capable of recognizing the truth of this return.
[Comment] haha this brings to focus my own naivete, as i almost/did believed him myself. this brings a lot for me to reflect on.
Of the many who have made this claim, this fragment appears to be fairly harmless, with "good" intentions.
We remind you that your capacity to choose, to believe, and discern is one that you must cultivate, yourself, and consider our input one of many, and not the definitive answer.
We share with you our perspective, and this will always only ever be another version of the truth, even if seen from a higher, clearer, more informed position; it is still only a version.
